Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, who is the first man to be appointed UN Women’s South Asia Goodwill Ambassador, Wednesday called for gender equality on the occasion of International Men's Day.
The 40-year-old has not only explored different realms of filmmaking like direction, acting and singing, he has also voiced several important issues of gender equality through his Men Against Rape and Discrimination (MARD) campaign.
“International Men's day today. Let's make it a marker for a renewed understanding of how we can contribute to create an equal future. #MARD.” the actor tweeted.
Farhan, who has created ripples at the box-office with his film "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", is currently busy with sister Zoya Akhtar's film “Dil Dhadakne Do” and “Do”.
